The CW cancelled most of its series from the regular 2021-22 television season. Because the network is being sold, the strategy of its owners making a profit from later sales of their programming will no longer be applicable. Will this unscripted series survive where so many scripted shows did not? Will Mysteries Decoded be cancelled or renewed for season three? Stay tuned. *Status Update Below
An investigative documentary series, the Mysteries Decoded TV show delves deeper into some of America’s greatest unsolved mysteries, exploring newly discovered evidence and utilizing high-tech tools in reopening each case. From the Phoenix Lights to the Werewolves of Kentucky, each investigation is led by Jennifer Marshall, an accomplished U.S. Navy veteran turned private investigator, as she mobilizes a team to embark on the formidable quest to bring closure to these long-lingering historical puzzles.
